Looking for a PDF printing macro

I'm looking to make adobe automatically print a file then shut itself off when ever a pdf is opened. has anyone ever scripted a macro like this?

We're trying to automate this. a event registration program we're using insists on opening a pdf of nametags before printing them requiring someone to hang out by the machine to hit print. We're hoping we can get adobe to just print the pdf of the nametag with out requiring someone to tell it to.

  • I can print from my macbook pro using airport express usb connected printer, however my iPad is looking for an airprint printer.  Can I direct the iPad to the usb connected printer.  Both macbook and iPad confirm a wifi connection through the airport exp.

    You will need to install an App like Print Central on the iPad to try to print to the printer. It will allow you to print to most printers. Check with their support folks if you need more info.

  • Looking for a pdf reader which meets these requirements

    I am looking for a pdf reader which meets these requirements:
    1- Open pdf starting from last page opened during last session
    2- Be able to scroll between pages vertically (not horizontally like many current ones do). Vertical scroll should be a continuous smooth scroll without doing a sudden full page pull in. Should behave as if pdf is one single very long page.
    3- Should be able to change width of page and lock it. Page should not move sideways. Page width should be remembered so when same pdf is opened, it opens in that width.
    4- A fast scroll feature. Useful for pdf's with hundreds of pages.
    5- Nice to have feature: when opening the pdf reader, it automatically opens the last pdf file on the last page read.
    I have tried all the free pdf readers in the AppStore and none met all these requirements except for two which had these issues:
    1- iRead limitation: When screen is touched for more than a second, the page is frozen (locked) and page can't be scrolled. Scrolling is done when doing quick swipes only
    2- FileApp limitation: Does not remember last page opened. Does not remember last width set. Fast scroll doesn't work properly when width is other than default.

    iAnnotate additional points
    iAnnotate works with DropBox to download and upload edited PDFs. It does all the other same things, email, USB, and iTunes etc. but it also can download PDFs from any web site.
    You can transfer hundreds if not thousands of files at one whack using the AIJ Utility on your desktop.
    If you transfer a large number of files you have to plan not to use iAnnotate a while as it has an index function that indexes all the text into a master 'dictionary' so it can do searches for data and find PDFs for you. This indexing takes hours if you transfer hundreds of moderate size PDFs at one time.
    The biggest PDF I have feed it was a Gimp manual at close to a thousand pages.
    Remember the scratch pad ram is only 256 MB in the current iPad. You can cash iAnnotate if you do something really dumb with such a large file. Other applications also grab and hold onto chunks of this ram in the iPad so it is best to force a memory reset before doing anything that is going to max out that ram.
    iAnnotate allows you to have more than one PDF open at a time and you can tab between all the open PDFs in a blink just as you would in a tabbed web browser.
    If you zoom a page larger than the width of the screen it slides around. Less than the width of the screen the page locks in the size while scrolling which is smooth between pages.
    iAnnotate is a very well made product for dealing with PDFs. Annotations display in Goodreader and in the Mac OS Preview.

  • Cocoon - Tomcat - APEX for FOP PDF printing

    I'm trying to setup Cocoon & Tomcat with APEX 4.1 for doing PDF printing of some reports.
    I'm using Linux 64bit, Tomcat 7.0.22, Cocoon 2.1.11, and JDK (build 1.6.0_24-b07).
    I followed Carl Backstrom's very helpful [blog entry|http://carlback.blogspot.com/2007/03/apex-cocoon-pdf-and-more.html] about using cocoon and tomcat to produce PDF reports through APEX. However, I must just be missing something, because it's not working at all for me.
    Does anyone have any suggestions about getting this to work? Whenever, I attempt to hit the cocoon site (localhost:8080/cocoon/), I receive the following error:
    "org.apache.cocoon.ResourceNotFoundException: No pipeline matched request: index.html"
    Whenever I attempt to download a PDF report, I receive this error:
    "Adobe reader cannot open 'reportname.pdf' because it is either not a supported file type or because the file has been damaged."
    If you have this configuration (cocoon, tomcat, APEX, PDF printing) working, I'd greatly appreciate it if you shared any URLs or tips you have in getting this setup. I understand why folks fork out the big $ for BI Publisher, but that's not an option for me.
    Many thanks,

    In the Tomcat Manager app, it shows that cocoon is deployed and running.
    I was able to reload it as well:
    "OK - Reloaded application at context path /cocoon"
    I see this in the Tomcat log:
    "SEVERE: The web application [cocoon] appears to have started a thread named [HSQLDB Timer @6b033450] but has failed to stop it. This is very likely to create a memory leak."

  • Looking for a Photo Printer

    Hello everyone. I am looking for a small printer that I can take with me to my photo session that can print glossy photos Something that can do the 8x10s or smaller.

    Hi again Kolourl3lind,
    Since you are looking for a compact photo printer, I recommend either the PIXMA iP100 or (maybe) the SELPHY CP900.  With the iP100, you will get better support for connecting the printer to a computer.  The CP900 is more suited for printing directly from a memory card or camera.  Both will produce excellent quality photo prints, but you are limited in size on the CP900 to around 4x6 prints.
    Of course, the PIXMA MG7120 is a good option as well.  This printer will allow you to print larger sizes and directly from a memory card.  However, it has some features you don't need (like scanning and copying) and it's definitely not as portable as the other two.
    My best suggestion is to contact our Sales Department.  Our agents will be happy to discuss the best model for your needs.

    I don't know of any laser printers that take a roll instead of sheets.  There are some small designjets that might have a roll feed accessory but they are inkjet printers and designed for graphics applications.

  • Looking for a mobile printer for my car/ on the road work for my IPAD2

    Looking for a printer I can use in my car and where ever necessary.

    I've been happily printing for a while from my iPad to my battery-operated HP H470 with absolutely no wires (and no router / pre-existing WiFi connection - it operates in AdHoc mode). Literally just the iPad and the H470 - in fact, one time in a marquee in the middle of a muddy field with no power and a long way from the nearest WiFi connection, so it can be done from literally anywhere.
    Once I'd sorted it all out, I wrote down the solution and the steps to get it to work in the hope of helping others:

  • Looking for a PDF app for iPad

    I'm sure I'm not the only one who's thought of this so I'm a believer that someone has created an app to help me and I can't find it!
    Pretty much, I'm looking for an app that will allow me to edit PDF's on my ipad and then send it (Via WiFi or Bluetooth) to my laptop.
    For example:
    Drawing a graph on my ipad, with detailed information, sending that to my macbook and then adding/inserting it to my PDF file on my laptop
    (Like getting a notification on my mac, loading it, draging it to my pdf, and vola!)
    If there is such a thing can someone help me out (If not feel free to take my idea and makes some money off of it, just let me know that you did!)

    Hey there
    "pdf creator" for iPad works flawlessly for me working with pdf files
    It takes care of all my needs
    I'm not sure about sending via Wifi or Bluetooth but I send them via e- mail all the time
    Possibly it could handle your needs as well
    Just type it into the App Store search field and the first one that comes up is the one I use
    Jump on over there and read up on it before buying and see if it will help you 
    Hope this helps

  • HT4356 I checked everything out and had no problem printing from IPAD/MINI using the HP Photosmart 6520 printer, but the next day, using same application, my HP did not show, but was looking for the AirPrint Printer, what am I doing wrong?

    Using IPAD2, IPAD MINi, HP photosmartE6520 set up on wireless network.  No problem printing from my devices, but the following day, it is looking for AirPrint printer, why? 

    Hello lenc48,
    Welcome to the HP Forums.
    I see that you are having a few issues when it comes to printing from your mac as well as some two sided printing issues.
    I do have a some suggestions that we can try in the attempt to troubleshoot this issue.
    First off, please make sure that you have the printer power cable connected directly to a wall outlet and not a power bar/strip. Here is a document that uses a LaserJet printer as an example but it is meant for HP products in general. Please click on the following link that explains the Issues when Connected to an Uninterruptible Power Supply/Power Strip/Surge Protector.
    Please remove the usb cable (if using wireless, disregard this step) from the printer and from the Mac and leave it disconnected until further notice.
    Please click on the first link that will give you instructions on Uninstalling the Printer Software.
    Once the software has been removed, please disable any anti virus protection that you may have on the Mac. 
    The next step we are going to take is downloading the HP Photosmart 6520 e-All-in-One Printer Full Feature Software and Drivers - OS X 10.9 Mavericks.
    The installation will prompt you when to connect the usb cable (You will see a prompt for a wireless connection as well if that is the connection type you would like to use) so please do not connect the cable until prompted to do so.
    If you are still having issues, feel free to write me back or you can contact HP Total care direct.  If you are calling within North America, the number is 1-800-474-6836 and for all other regions, click here: click here.
    Thanks for your time.

  • Due to the requirement of a UUT report with pageheaders, I am looking for solution to print an MS Access report from TestStand. I am using TestStand 4.2 and LabView 8.6.

    Go to Solution.

    You can customize your process model with LabVIEW steps. You can connect to the access database http://digital.ni.com/public.nsf/allkb/1D5EB4DCBD13106486256B9D005E11B0 you can also get the data and format it and print it with the report generation toolkit, or you could see if Access exposes those functions through an ActiveX server. What functionality exactly are you looking for, and at the end of the day how much time are you willing to develop your own customized microsoft access reporting function?

  • Looking for a MFC, printer/scanner

    I am looking for an all in one printer scanner. I need both the printer and the scanner to work in arch linux, and I don't want to spend a week making it happen. I would prefer something that supports ethernet and both features work over the network but that isn't absolutely necessary. After wasting 2 hours looking at printers then looking up their linux support I decided to ask you guys. What do you use that meets my requirements? would you recommend it to someone who hadn't just killed your cat?

    In our office we have been using a Brother MFC8860DN for three years now. We use Debian linux exclusively. Very good choice, thinking of buying the MFC8880DN to have a backup for when our first MF should start to lose its feathers... Last week I wrote my first bash script to use together with this device: I have it scan to ftp and our server performs OCR on the scan automatically.
    Brother has full linux support. They provide drivers in deb and rpm, but I guess it should not be a problem to get those packages working in arch linux.
    I'm quite surprised to see so many HP-fans out here, but probably their drivers are better for linux than they are for windows. The last HP Photosmart-printer had a driver that was 345MB big, and it could not be installed because the printer had been connected to the laptop *prior* to installing the driver. I had to reinstall windows just to get that printer (mostly) working... So no HP printers for me anymore
    I can confirm that the HP drivers for Windows suck big time. When I turned on my new printer, I first installed it on my laptop. I ran a pacman -S hplip, ran the software, detected my printer over wireless, and was ready within a minute or so. Then I installed the printer on my desktop archer. Same results: I was ready within a minute. Then I booted into Windows XP. I had to download some serious MBs, and when I executed the exe file, installation was aborted halfway, because Windows were not installed on C:. After long research, I found the cure, which was a joke. I had to mount my system drive (E:) as a network drive and perform the installation in there LOL. Anyways, after installation, my whole system was getting very jerky and unresponsive, and cpu usage was getting very high. Didn't bother any more, just uninstalled it completely. Not much of a problem, though, since I have to use Windows rarely for a couple of apps.

  • Looking for a PDF editor for Mac.

    I have hundreds of PDF files that contain the combination of letters  "XX"  and I want them all to be "HH" is there an editor out there that can do this?
    I tried using Pitstop, and it cannot batch anything like this.  I would like to be able to do many files at the same time.  If I have to do them one at a time, I may as well keep doing it the way I am.
    Currently going back to the ID file making the change and re-writing PDF---working fine, just wondering if there is a better way.
    Just looking for a way to make text edits in the PDF, I have found some editors for PC but having issues with PS fonts.  Yes I could change everything to open type, and then do the change, but that may bring on new problems.

    Nope. That's the best way.

  • Looking for job PDF resumes vs html or doc resumes, what gives?

    I've been looking for jobs and most of the sites that want my resume, monster, creative group, etc, all want it in doc or html format? what gives??? I designed this great looking resume in InDesign that converts well to PDF with nice fonts and I can't even use it !!!! Now I have to resort to times and other fonts using word to make sure that my resuem at least looks somewhere close to what it should be. What happened? I thought PDF was supposed to be used by all? why does everyone want this stuff in word?
    Please shed some light on this for me,

    >In reference to post 3, is that a bad thing? Should I be wary of employers trying to 'get my guard down'???
    Yes. If I were interviewing, I would try to get you to relax and feel at home -- and then see how you, as a potential employee, handle that. I want to see if the person has a tendency towards office behavior that could be inappropriate or that does not fit in with my office environment. In today's market, I'd also be scouring Facebook and other social networking sites for info on candidates I'm considering.
    And for the interview, generally dress and act appropriately for going out on a sales call for the potential employer's clients -- if hired, you may be expected to do that.
    As for portfolio presentation, personally, I'd rather the portfolio binder be like the frame around a picture, not an in-your-face statement. Do you want interviewers to remember the binder or its content? But other folks running with more arty clients may have a different spin on this than I. And always stick a few extra résumés in the portfolio; the designed ones are fine there.
    I once had a portfolio sent to me for review that was held together with more elaborate folds and strings than an origami dog walker. I had several additional portfolios still lined up with little time to review them. All I wanted to do is rip the damn thing open. And I can't remember anything about the work inside.
    And network. Most jobs are through networking with friends, family, neighbors, acquaintances and sites like LinkedIn, etc.
